Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course, student should be able to:

[1]    Describe characteristics of manufacturing processes applied in the industry.

[2]    Analyze the capability of various manufacturing processes in products development.

[3]    Develop various skills and techniques in manufacturing process as an individual or in a group.


This course introduces students to manufacturing activities that mainly focus on two major areas; metal removal, metal forming and shaping processes.  For metal removal processes, students will be taught the fundamental concept of cutting, cutting tool materials and cutting fluids. It also includes the machining processes used to produce round shapes such as lathe operation, boring, drilling, reaming and tapping. For producing other shapes using milling, shaping, broaching and sawing processes, filling operation will be required.  Besides, the students will be provided with a clear understanding of metal forming and metal shaping processes such as rolling, forging, extrusion, drawing of metals and sheet metal forming.
